Abstract

Bacterial thyroiditis is a rare disease, and one of which the clinical symptoms and signs are frequently misleading. On the other hand, prompt diagnosis is crucial for successful treatment. We report the case of an 82 year-old man with diabetes mellitus type 2 and a history of steroid treatment who presented with severe odynophagia and dysphagia associated with fever, chills, sore throat and right ear pain. Based on the clinical picture, radiological studies, thyroid cytology, blood and thyroid aspirate culture, suppurative thyroiditis caused by Salmonella enteritidis was diagnosed. The patient was successfully treated with antibiotics and surgical drainage. (Pol J Endocrinol 2011; 62 (5): 466–470)
